Samsung Galaxy A8: Its Slimmest Phone Ever

Samsung Galaxy A8: Its Slimmest Phone Ever

Samsung has announced the latest in its A series of phones: the Galaxy A8. It isn't the most powerful phone, but its all-metal body makes it Samsung's thinnest ever — but sadly, you might not be able to buy one.

The new phone measures just 5.9mm in thickness and weighs 150g. In terms of specs, there's a 5.7-inch 1080p OLED display (with a particularly skinny bezel), an 8-core Snapdragon 615 chip, 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera, 2GB of RAM, a 3050mAh battery and a fingerprint sensor.

All told, it's a fairly mid-range Android device wrapped up in a slim, sleek exterior. The device has been launched in China, where it's expected to sell for 3499 yuan, or about $760. There's no word on forthcoming international availability yet. It will be available in black, white and gold.
